Take a break banner

We are committed to ensuring that all staff take their breaks. 

If you work more than six hours in one stretch, you are entitled to a 20-minute rest break under the Working Time Regulations.

Rest breaks can include tea breaks, lunch breaks, or other short breaks during the day. It is not just because of the regulations that breaks are important; it's because they are good for you too.

Taking a break gives you a chance to take a breather, replenish your energy levels by eating or having a drink, physically resting, or taking a mental break.
